There are a number of benefits to taking a daily serving of CBD, but the most prominent among them is that the natural non-psychoactive compound helps augment the body’s naturally occurring endocannabinoids to encourage balance and homeostasis. When absorbed by the body, CBD interacts with the body’s endocannabinoid system, which is responsible for regulating a number of the body’s functions, including sleep, mood, appetite, and immune function. CBD supplements the body’s own endocannabinoids to improve the endocannabinoid system’s ability to maintain balance despite outside fluctuations and influences.

CBD and other trace cannabinoids found in hemp oil work together in what’s referred to as the “entourage effect” to provide their balancing effects. These balancing properties have shown to potentially suppress seizure activity, combat psychosis disorders, fight tumor cells, battle depression, and protect brain cells. CBD is therefore becoming increasingly sought after by families faced with serious diseases, like epilepsy, cancer, depression, and Alzheimer’s disease.

But the homeostasis-encouraging properties of daily CBD are also beneficial to everyone, regardless of a health diagnosis. Studies have found that CBD improves sleep, reduces anxiety, and improves cognition. Cannabinoid use has also been found to be associated with a reduced risk of developing metabolic syndrome, a health condition that includes high blood pressure, high blood sugar, excess body fat, and abnormal cholesterol levels.

Although it’s not critical to take CBD every day, doing so may increase the benefits of the supplement. CBD, like all cannabinoids, can build up in the body and stimulate an increase in the endocannabinoid system’s cannabinoid receptors. This can help make the endocannabinoid system even more active and sensitive to stimulation by cannabinoids, improving the system’s abilities to achieve and maintain homeostasis.

Many families incorporate vitamins into their routine for optimal health and wellness, but they may be missing the balancing benefits of CBD.
